For the first 71 viewings, it always annoyed me that everyone else gets to fuck someone, but he only gets to kiss his essay. It's a great essay, not a slut with no self respect like Claire, but it's still just a collection of words on pulped trees.
But as they say, 72nd time's a charm.
Brian doesn't get a girl in The Breakfast Club because he doesn't know how to talk to women. He doesn't deserve a girl. It has nothing to do with him being a nerd. He just doesn't know how to talk to women; he has no game.
Now that I have had this realisation I think I can face a new world of hope and celebration and go out and have a sex with a girl (or guy, whatever). How exciting, ey guys!
